TRF offers full-day center-based ECE programs for children from birth to 12 years. TRF uses the Creative Curriculum, which focuses on the individual needs of each child and supports all areas of development—language, cognitive, social emotional, physical and creative. Developmental milestones are measured using screenings, ongoing assessments and authentic observations. Our School-Age Programs provide recreational and educational components, which support children in primary education, reinforcing classroom instruction. Our programs includes providing children with balanced meals daily.
Family Engagement & Parenting Groups
TRF classrooms provide nurturing spaces that support the development of infants, toddler and preschool-aged children. Our School-Age Programs support classroom education through Academic and Developmental Activities both after-school and during our Full-Day Summer Camp Programs.

Each classroom includes spaces for children to work in large and small groups or independently throughout the day–both indoors and outdoors. Materials and equipment are designed to meet children’s developmental needs and help their healthy growth and development. Each of our classrooms integrates family cultures and support the changing ages, stages, interests and characteristics children over time.
